The Art Behind the Awards

Posted January 13, 2015 at 10:05am

Famous Frames is best known for our storyboards for film, television and advertising. However, most people don’t realize the full breadth of production art services that we provide.

In honor of the 2015 HFPA’s Golden Globes, we’re focusing on the work that we have done for some of the 2015 Globe nominees in various stages of development, from concepting to marketing.  

1. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association Golden Globes - NBC

Artist Renee Reeser works with NBC on many projects. She even made an on air debut during The Voice drawing for a Kia Motor Spot. This year, for the 2015 Golden Globes, Renee provided key art concept sketches for the main event. This provided the producers with options for their execution of photo shoots and marketing materials. Drawing Tina Fey and Amy Poehler demonstrates Renee’s top tier skills in fashion and beauty as well as likenesses

2. Into The Woods- Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical nominee

Big studio films go through a lot of changes in the preproduction process. Artist Darek Gogol, who boasts credits like The Pirates of the Caribbean, Iron Man and The Fast & The Furious, worked with Director Rob Marshall to create some of the initial imagery that was later seen in the final film product. 

3. Louie - FX - Louie CK nominated for best actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy

Another piece of the Famous Frames pie is working with networks and studios creating their on-air promotions. Artist Charles Rattaray has worked with FX on several of their in house promos like Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story, and Golden Globe nominee Louie. His stylistic approach to these spots is what makes his art unique.  

4. How to Train your Dragon 2- Best Animated Feature Film

Gabriella Farkas provided the marketing art for the DVD and Blu-ray release of DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon 2; She does a lot of work with fashion and beauty projects as well as character art. These beloved characters were created in black & white first, and then transformed to color. 

5. The Book of Life- Best Animated Feature

So much of the work we do helps the director bring their vision to life. Artist Len Morganti is an excellent example of that! He’s done the storyboards for high profile Oscar winners like Argo and the Hunger Games, but he also works on unique projects like concepting art for The Book of Life’s Electronic Press Kit. A lot of this work is not seen by the public, but helps the production team plan their course of action.  “I am just interpreting the director’s notes into a visual representation so that everyone in the crew can be on the same page,” Len says about his work.
